  • We wanted to go to a chateau with character which this certainly has. Not cheap to go in 12euro each for the gardens but they were delightful and had secret little areas that made it special  more »

  • Castle's visit for its garden and its niche in the Valley of the Cissé. A place full of humanity and peace of mind.

  • Beautiful garden! some parts of the Park make think of gardens in Italy: it is very marked. Garden to him alone is worth the visit, and to the wire of the promenade there are a lot of very pleasant surprises. The owner is almost impossible to find plant collection: she practices exchanges of seeds with a large Conservatory of plants located in Russia. The young gardener has a remarkable knowledge of gardening.
